I took a peek before choosing... another motel! Even the $49. rate could not entice me, so I moved a bit further towards town and took the Bio Vista instead - a much better economical choice.

This room was dirty, cold (with only one thin, worn quilt on the bed) and you had to run the water for 15 minutes before any hot water would come out of the taps. There is no phone in the room to contact the front desk for any reason. The tv didn't work properly. The shower (on top of being... More

We had occasion to stay at the Bison Motel for Stampede weekend and had a great experience. The rooms were clean, huge and comfortable. The hostess was very friendly and most accomodateing to all our needs. All this and the price was very reasonable. Thank you and look forward to staying again soon.

I walked through the front door and felt immediately at home. The managers are special people, and it showed in eveything they did. I was given a spacious, clean, quiet room, with a beautiful mural, that took up one whole wall. The art work was amazing. The managers took me around and showed me more of the incredible paintings, I... More

I have never written a review of a motel before but felt that I had to this time. I stayed at the Bison last week and was amazed by both the managers and the murals on the walls. Apparently the managers have changed recently at the motel and they have really been cleaning things up. Wendy (one of the managers)... More
